Holiday Cranberry Punch

We hope you had a great thanksgiving with your family and friends- now here we are onto the next holiday season! As I was driving home from michael’s tonight ( a frequent stop of mine- hehe) I saw sooooo many houses with lights up already! You would think it would get me excited and in the holiday mood- but i couldn’t help but think of how much there was to do between now and Christmas and how would I ever find the time to even hang lights?? I suppose I will just have to take it one day at a time and coax my dear husband into hanging those bad boys sooner or later. 🙂

Here is a holiday punch (yes it is alcoholic) that my family made for thanksgiving but would do great for all those festivities quickly approaching….it was a sure hit! My cousin was literally taking home an empty water bottle of the punch home because she couldn’t see the rest being wasted- too cute.


  • 64 oz cranberry juice
  • 12 oz frozen orange juice
  • 12 oz frozen pink lemonade
  • 1 cup brandy
  • 1 bottle of dry champagne

Party tip- use a jello mold as your ice ring- but instead of using water which will melt and dilute your punch, the day before make an ice ring of cranberry juice and float festive fruit slices and cranberries so when it melts guests will find them a’ float in their cups.

Cheers to good times and happy holidays coming your way!
